Learn about ‘do it yourself’ attitudes towards making it in the creative industries

Fully booked for advance bookings. A small number of tickets will be available from the Switch House Level 5 on the day, first come, first served.

Graphic Design arts graduate duo Chi + Josh along with performance artist Xavier de Sousa talk about their individual practices and how they have managed to make it for themselves in the creative industries. Drawing on their university experience they will speak about what they have been up to since graduating, current projects and future plans.

The talk will offer an insight into creating your own opportunities despite the current economic climate and funding cuts across the arts. They’ll discuss the importance of networking and collaboration in university and beyond, as well as how to master social media and showcase your work.

About the speakers:

Chi + Josh (Chiamaka Ojechi and Joshua Allen) were invited by Ravensbourne University, an innovative, industry-focused university sector college located in the heart of London.

Xavier de Sousa was invited by Arts Emergency, a charity that fundraise to run mentoring, establish networks for disadvantaged students and send empowering speakers into state schools.

Future Talks are curated by young people from Tate Collective London for their peers.

Future Talks are part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

This event is part of the opening weekend for the new Tate Modern, brought to you by Uniqlo.
